Natalie's Score: 88/100

A pretty floral, herbal white that's not grassy. Terrific blend of these white grapes in just the right proportions. Zingy, crisp and refreshing.

All of these grapes were grown in the light soils of the Black Sage Bench. All were harvested very ripe with nicely balanced acidity. These grapes typically have very tannic and bitter skins so the clusters were pressed whole to minimize any maceration and leaching of bitterness into the juice. The fermentations were all conducted very cool in stainless steel tanks using Prise de Mousse and DV10 yeasts. No lees contact was allowed post-fermentation; the wine was simply allowed to settle and clarify and was immediately prepared for bottling. Simple.
